"Know and Grow" is here!
This week marks the official release of the new edition of "How to Know and Grow Gesneriads", a 56-page manual published by The Gesneriad Society and edited by yours truly. Many members of The Gesneriad Society contributed to the creation of this book. The Society last published such a manual decades ago, and there has long been a need for a basic reference on gesneriads and their culture."How to Know and Grow Gesneriads" includes an essay on "What is a Gesneriad"; descriptions of the kinds of gesneriads; descriptions and photographs of 25 popular gesneriad genera; and detailed cultural information. It will be especially useful for beginners and intermediate growers, but we hope that any gesneriad lover will enjoy it. Cover price is $10, and quantity discounts are available. Order it online at the Society's site or on Amazon.com.
